Gender is important but sometimes gender is difficult, you feel me

Anyway destroy the patriarchy

whoops, wrote dis hours ago and 2 more...
Let's be real for a moment.

Don't you dare deny the evils of the patriarchy.  Don't you dare spit on all the women on whom our society encourages assault and violation.  Don't you dare blame the victims of these assaults.  Don't you dare try to justify their earning cents on the dollar.  Don't you dare tell them what their role in society is, or what you want them to do, or that they should calm down.  Don't you dare devalue them because they're angry - they have every right to be angry.  And most of all, don't you DARE deny that this oppression exists just because YOU don't suffer it.  If you don't care about oppression unless you're part of the group being actively oppressed, you're a cartoonishly evil villain. 
Women are suffering every day and whether you see it or deny it will not change that immutable, hideous fact.  It affects your sisters, your mothers, the strangers on the street.  It affects women, it affects men, and it affects people of non-binary gender like me.  It's not the natural order of things.  It's a system of power and control, and its biggest aid is that it is subconsciously supported. 
But we can tear it apart, together.
You don't have to be a radical to make a positive impact. Every one of us can fight for what is right, even in small daily ways.  Call out misogynists when they make ###### jokes.  Stand up for women and LGBTQ people.  Make donations to positive organizations.  Don't just shout out when something big happens - this stuff is a constant, daily thing, so pushing back against it needs to happen every day.  This has nothing to do with politics.  This has nothing to do with party lines.  This has nothing to do with being some kind of hero.  It has everything to do with humanity and decency.
Be strong.  Be resolute.  Do not stop being angry.  Do not stop talking about this.  Do not focus on gender issues, or sexist issues, or racial issues, or LGBTQ issues, or trans*misogyny issues, just because it's a hot-button thing today.  The marginalizing continues tomorrow.  It will continue until we burn the system to ash.  Stay furious every day that women are hurt.  Stay furious every day.  Stand up.  Fight back.

Special songwriting sneak peek

Posted by Queen of Noise , Jun 14 2013 · 248 views

working on a new song, this is what i've got so far.  The style is like "punk doo-wop"
"Friend of Mine"
I'm really glad to see you're having so much fun, I swear!
And moving on without me as if I never had been there
It's wonderful that you can just pretend it's all okay
Really, I'm just fine alone; so run along and play
Play your game
Without me
Dear friend of mine, what you did was wrong
It doesn't make it better just because you've carried on
Dear friend of mine, I'm feeling so used
Who'd have thought that such a friend would leave me so abused
It's great that your position is worth more than what is right
Better to stay quiet than stand up and start a fight
I hope you're very comfortable; you'll never take that fall
Or maybe I'm deluded to think it matters at all
To you
But it matters to me
I wonder how you sleep at night, knowing what you've done
It it heavy in your stomach when you're having all that fun?
You say it's so #### logical; you'll never compromise
But have you ever even thought to go apologize?
Lord knows I have
But how about you?
[CODA - Raise key]
We know #### well there's blame to share
So swallow your ###### pride
I know the taste is bitter
'Cause it's all I've got inside
Would it kill you to admit it?
Would it kill you just to see?
A person's not a robot
We feel and touch and plea
Maybe you feel justified
Like I have all along
At least I've got the heart
To admit the times I'm wrong
And if this #### means more to you
Than all that's been decried
Then who needs you?
I don't
Maybe someday I'll remember what it's like to be happy and I'll write a song that isn't just misery 24/7.  Anyway I'm trying to decide if I should shoehorn this into Oh, Tonight or put it on a future album

Did I play too hard?

Posted by Queen of Noise , Jun 07 2013 · 499 views

Did I play too hard? So I took this picture of my guitar the morning after our gig on the 5th.
I'd torn open three of my fingers about halfway through the show and was spraying blood everywhere but kept playing and finished the set.
The lesson is that you may be metal but you will never be as metal as I am.


Hey DC-Area People!

Posted by Queen of Noise , Jun 04 2013 · 281 views

Come see my band tomorrow at the Velvet Lounge!  We're on the bill with two other bands, the Polygons and the Fisherman Band.  The doors open at 7:30, the show starts at 9:00, and we go onstage at 10:00.  You will regret it if you don't come!
The Velvet Lounge is on U St in Washington DC and is literally just two blocks from the U St metro stop so you basically have zero excuse not to come.
If you're in a horrible accident (the only excuse for not coming), you can download our free new EP and our two singles here.

You can also download our original singles, "The Problem" and "Words Words Words," AND you can get your hands on some sweet NP stickers.  All of these are only a buck apiece but if you use the coupon code "bzpower" you'll get a discount, because I love you.
Our 14-track album of original songs comes out later this summer and we're playing another gig JUNE 5TH in Washington DC at the Velvet Lounge!  Please download our music, come out and support us, and rock on forever!!
Also you can follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Nervous_Pudding
AND we just redesigned our web site! http://nervouspuddingband.com
